This Month in Senses: August

The fact it's the end of August honestly makes me a little queasy. Literally where did the summer go? Not that I'm unhappy - Autumn is by far my favourite season. Plus, it's my birthday at the start of September! Anyway, onto my month in senses:

Brand Brag: Dusty Girls

Dusty Girls is a makeup collection by Moo Goo that I first saw on instagram and was instantly drawn to the packaging.I had to try it, but it was all the way from Australia! Thankfully - I'm convinced it's fate that I found this brand - a local pharmacy stocked it! The only one in my part of the UK, too! How lucky is that?! I headed straight down and grabbed a healthy selection.

So a few days ago I received an email from a "PR company" asking if I was interested in collaborating. It turned out to be a scam. Thankfully I didn't fall for it, but it was a little tricky for me to confirm it was fake. Bloggers could all too easily fall for it, especially as there seems to be little to nothing written online about it that reveals it to be a scam. If you're a blogger, I suggest you read on.

My Birthday Wish List

My birthday is coming up! I'll be turning 20 at the start of September - the 8th to be exact - and I may  technically be an "adult", but I still make birthday lists. Always have done, probably always will do. I'll be giving out my 90th birthday wish list to my great great grandchildren, guaranteed!

NEW Dior Backstage Pro Fix It Colour REVIEW

I remember first seeing the new Dior Backstage Pro Fix It Colour colour correctors on the Sephora website a little while ago and being really disappointed that it didn't ship to the UK! So here I've been, waiting patiently for them to launch over here. Finally I got my hands on them, and I've been really excited to do this review!

I recently heard about the folks over at Light.co and their #VantagePoint project. Light.co are a company designing a new compact camera, and started the project in order to highlight the importance of equipment when taking a photograph.

Chanel Le Rouge Collection NO.1 REVIEW & SWATCHES

When the email came into my inbox with the news of Lucia Pica's Autumn 2016 beauty lineup launch, I was beyond excited. It's red themed, so it's totally fall appropriate with lots of warmth. Most of the collection was actually bought for me as an early birthday present, which makes it that extra bit exciting.

NEW Smashbox Studio Skin Concealer REVIEW

Smashbox recently launched their new Studio Skin Concealer, and of course - being the makeup junkie I am - I snapped it up straight away. This was a couple of weeks ago now, so here I am reporting my findings!

Nars Dual Intensity Blush Palette REVIEW

I have been a big fan of the Dual Intensity blushes by Nars ever since they first came out, and I have quite a few in my collection now. So when the e-mail about this new addition to the family - the Nars Dual Intensity Blush Palette - appeared in my inbox, I was really really excited.

L'Occitane Sublime Perfecting Range REVIEW

I have been loyal to the moisturiser and serum from L'Occitane's Sublime Perfecting range for nearly two years now, and fairly recently L'Occitane added new products to the range. Seeing as how much I loved the original creams I couldn't wait to give them a try! I bought them when they first came out so I've had plenty of time to form an opinion, so here's what I think!

Smashbox Colour Correcting Stick REVIEW

I am a huge fan of colour correcting, so I was really excited when I saw these launched in the states a month or two ago. They didn't ship to the UK, so I've been eagerly anticipating them to be released over here the past couple of months.

Ole Henriksen Truth Sugar Glow Polishing Mask Review

I tend to steer away from reviewing miscellaneous individual products as opposed to specific new releases and collections, but I just couldn't help myself when it came to the Truth Sugar Glow Polishing Mask by Ole Henriksen, it is really special.

July Favourites

I'm sat here refusing to believe it's August right now. Literally what even happened in June and July?
